scores need to be online immediately.Order on demand has to be available.We have no patience as a society any more.Maybe some of us do as individuals.We should all try to be more patience.Here are some reminders of the fact that
great things take time!

your life?Where is your life
headed?If you stay on your current
trajectory, where will you end up?This
is a critical question.Often, we sit idly
by and let life take us in certain directions without attempting to influence

the trajectory of your life. You do.Do
not sit back and let life happen to you.God has a plan for you and wants to see you pursue that plan.To do so you likely need to be proactive in
determining the course of your life.Check your current trajectory and tweak it as needed…

around.We should think about this more,
consider our choice of words before we open our mouths.Next time you are about to embark on a
cursing rant just envision all those lovely words tattooed on your skin!Scary…
